state of Mississippi (and portions of Arkansas and Louisiana) which lies between the Mississippi and Yazoo region has been called "The Most Southern Place on Earth" ("Southern" in the sense of "characteristic of its region, the American South").
Seaward progradation of the land surface by the present and former Mississippi River deltas has created the Recent deltaic plain of southeastern Louisiana.
Each time the Mississippi has advanced a major deltaic lobe seaward, subsequent abandonment of the overly extended river course in favor of a shorter, more direct route to the Gulf has occurred.
The Environmental Atlas of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin provides citizens, planners, managers, educators, scientists and other professionals with a multidisciplinary and integrated source of information on Lake Pontchartrain and its surrounding Basin.
The upper delta plain lies above the level of effective saltwater intrusion and is unaffected by marine processes. Most of the sediments comprising this part of the delta plain originate from the migratory tendency of distributary channels, overbank flooding during annual highwater periods, and periodic breaks in the river banks, in which "crevassing" into adjacent lake basins : Web page.
